That Nickel Creek are three exceptional young musicians is never going to be a long debate, it's whether they can keep the momentum of their smash first album that will be interesting. This release has all the softness and melody of their eponymous debut (ie 'grown-up' debut, not the things they did when they were 12!)CD, and is dripping with characteristic sweet production courtesy of Alison Krauss. However, it's the invention that these three have working for them that should keep you coming back. The mandolin playing of Chris Thile keeps getting better, and the interplay between him, Sean Watkins (Guitar) and his sister Sara (Fiddle and some lead vocals)is consitently maturing and developing. Their appearance on 'Later ...' should do them no harm in the UK in terms of sales, but frankly it's the freshness of approach, the vitality of playing and the sheer enjoyment that comes through this recording, along with some of the most beautifully crafted modern bluegrass you're ever likely to hear, that should make this a worthy addition to your shopping list. Buy it and enjoy.

I had never heard of Nickel Creek before they were recommended to me by a friend. But this Album has become a constant player in my car, on my computer, in my living room. The first thing that struck me about the album was the back to basics nature of the music. Chris Thile's Mandolin playing, from the opening track "smooothie Song" had me captured. Not until the second track do the wonderful vocals of Sean and Sarah Watkins get added. I was left wondering what life was like in their household with these tallented duo playing and singing in it. They would certainly give "The Corrs" a run for their money!
The 13 times Grammy winner Alison Krauss produced the Album and she has used all of that expertise on this Album. Well done Alison, well done Nickel Creek for an excellent CD.

I ordered the import version of this album straight from .com as I am a huge fan of Nickel Creek and have been to see them both times theyve been to Britain.I was highly impressed again that Nickel Creek had produced a superb album.Obviously due to record company pressure they had to make an album with more songs less handclappers.This is a shame because the the handclappers are half the fun but the songs dont dissapoint with Chris Thile and Sean Watkins writing brilliantly. Stand out tracks have to be the pavement cover Spit On A Stranger (which let me assure you is better than the original)and the title track This Side.So buy this album please and fund real talent in the music industry

I've been eagerly awiating this release having been so impressed with NickelCreek's debut album.

I am pleased to say that I was not dissapointed, that is not to say however that this release is as good as or any better than it's predecessor.

NickelCreek are at an advantage over most new bands in that they once again have one of America's most talented musicians, (my opinion)Alison Krauss as their produceer. The result of which is a more mature and confident approach than previous, (I was amazed that this was possible). A brilliant selection of songs, with a healthy contribution written by band members Sean Watkins and Chris Thile.

Vocally the album is outstanding too. Sara Watkins' vocal syle displaying Alison Krauss' influence more than ever. On the track "I Should Have Known Better" I actually thought Kruass was singing! We also have lead vocals from Sean this time and find him to have as impressive a voice as Chris.

So if this album's so brilliant why only four stars? I hear you say. Well here's the reason. For me the arrangements are too cluttered. One good example is the whispered backing vocals on "I Should Have Known Better," which not only interfere with the song they almost cancel out the lead.

Then there is the beautiful track "Hanging By A Thread," that has a disapointing ending. It seems the vocal runs out of steam and you are left with what seems like a long pause before an insignificant string arrangement.

That's the gripes out of the way and these are not major things, listen to this album a few times and they will slip your mind. The number of good points on this album far outweigh its faults and my favourites include the easy going title track,written and sung by Sean Watkins.

At last, the eagerly awaited follow up to the superb self-titled debut. And the 'creek have not let us down. They venture into new territory here, from the blue-grass and acoustics you'd expect, into downright rocky tunes and experimental stuff. 'Spit on a stranger' is catchy, infectious and a wonderful piece of music that you couldn't have put on the debut. It gives you an indication as to Chris Thile's new vocal style too. Throughout the album he utilises all of his range and pulls it off brilliantly. Sarah Watkin's voice is as clear and angelic as ever, but shows there's an edge to it (particularly evident in 'beauty and the mess') when she chooses. But by far the most important and exciting thing for me was that Sean Watkins takes lead vocals on a couple of tracks, and blew me away. His voice is strong and melodious and I hope it is a sign of things to come and that he will continue to sing lead.
3 such talented people in the one band....it was always going to be good. <grin>
